  • Greg Collins takes over Lady...

     BOWLING GREEN – Being a college basketball head coach is what Greg Collins always wanted to do. He just didn’t want to rush into the wrong job.

    Last Wednesday, Collins, a 1983 Bullitt Central graduate, got his dream job when he was named the new women’s coach at Western Kentucky University. Collins becomes the 11th head coach in the program’s history, a program that is in the top 10 for wins in the country.

  • Softball still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading to Florida for spring break worked out to some extent for both the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    First and foremost, the two teams found some good weather and got in plenty of action, something that was lacking here at home over the first two weeks of the season. What didn’t improve was the winning percentage as both teams posted 1-4 marks on their trips.

  • Bernheim finishes fifth in NASP...

     LOUISVILLE – Sometimes in archery, it is hard to tell if the success comes from the youngest and works its way up or if the programs develop from the top down.

    Eastside Middle School really started the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) many years ago and those shooters eventually fueled a strong Bullitt East program for a number of years.

    Now, on the other side of the county, it appears that the middle schools are taking the example from Bullitt Central and North Bullitt and building on success to power those programs in the long run.
